AppArmor description

http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Security/

Linux application security framework

AppArmor is a software that gives you network application security via mandatory access control for programs, protecting against the exploitation of software flaws and compromised systems.

 

AppArmor is an effective and easy-to-use Linux application security system. AppArmor proactively protects the operating system and applications from external or internal threats, even zero-day attacks, by enforcing good behavior and preventing even unknown application flaws from being exploited.

 

AppArmor security policies completely define what system resources individual applications can access, and with what privileges. A number of default policies are included with AppArmor, and using a combination of advanced static analysis and learning-based tools, AppArmor policies for even very complex applications can be deployed successfully in a matter of hours.
